Reality Check: In Pursuit of the Right Questions by Carlo Mahfouz is an eye-opening self-help guide offering tools and strategies for overcoming ambiguity and dilemmas to resolve the issues humans face today. To achieve the skill of asking the right questions and solving multi-layered problems, Mahfouz asserts that one must be prepared and present at the moment. Through reverse engineering, the work establishes what needs to be accomplished first for one to ask the right and appropriate questions that lead to problem-solving. It examines how context, time, and the observer, aware of the context, influence the questions asked. It expounds on the elements that affect our questioning, revealing hidden biases and obstacles to asking the right questions.
In an age characterized by information overload, subjectivity, and complex problems, this self-help guide is an important work that provides a systematic framework for getting to the heart of an issue and finding solutions to the issues we face. I appreciated that it brought to my attention different aspects that affect the process of arriving at the right questions. I found the author's anecdotes useful since they helped clarify the points put forward. The book includes various external sources that help expand its discussions and provide thought-provoking perspectives about its themes, which have the need for adaptability and perseverance. Reality Check by Carlo Mahfouz is a relevant, helpful guide that teaches readers how to ask thoughtful questions to tackle problems.
